Putting Entire Forum into Read Only Mode
Hello All,

We've moved on to a new forum, but I want to "mothball" the old forum that was powered by Gossamer. In other words, people can read/search, etc., but cannot make new posts.

How can I do this? One thing I thought was that I could set every user to "Guest" (except the Admins of course) which would mean that they cannot post. Is there an easy way to do this in one fell swoop? I have 1500 users, so don't really feel like doing it one at a time.

Or is there another clever trick to accomplish my goal?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Best WIshes,
Mark
